May Pinterest Challenge-- Sour Cream and Onion Chex mix

We are always on the look out for new Chex Mix flavorings  (just check out our Italian Ranch mix, Zesty Ranch, Parmesan Italian Chex mix, or our Best Chex Mix EVER).

I wondered if there was a way I could make some sour cream and onion Chex mix.  I went looking on Pinterest and didn't find a single recipe for it but I did find this pin that promised a delicious sour cream and onion popcorn or snack shaker and thought I could use that.

Now to make the sour cream and onion Chex mix you will need:


2 Tablespoons powdered milk
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon dill
2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
5 Tablespoons melted butter
corn Chex
rice Chex
cheddar goldfish crackers
bagel chips; any flavor (we used sea salt)

In a small bowl I combined the powdered milk, vinegar, salt, onion powder, dill and parmesan cheese.  Then I set the bowl aside.


I microwaved the butter to melt it while I combined Chex cereal, goldfish crackers, and bagel chips in a large bowl.  I don't really measure how much I use; I just fill up the bowl with an eye pleasing mixture of them all.


I poured the melted butter over the Chex mixture and gave it a good stir to make sure the butter was pretty evenly distributed then I poured the flavor mixture over everything and continued stirring making sure to get a good coating of the mixture on everything.



I microwaved the bowl for 6 minutes; stopping to stir every 2 minutes.  When it was done I spread it all out on some paper towels to cool off.



After it cools we store it in a few plastic containers with lids but it never seems to last very long.

This was packed with flavor but my boys didn't think it really tasted like sour cream and onion.  I think next time I'd try to decrease or omit the dill seasoning altogether to see if it tastes more like sour cream and onion that way.

  2. This looks great, and your timing is perfect. I bought some powdered milk, thinking I'd use it as a creamer in my milk, but I don't like it. I was hoping to find a recipe or two to use it up.

    1. That is a great idea! For some strange reason we often BUY Chex mix to take with us on road trips; I can not for the life of me think of why we have not made our own!
